RESULTS -- FEBRUARY 1 CITY COUNCIL MEETING

The North Myrtle Beach City Council met on Monday, February 1 at 7:00 pm at City Hall.

Council passed first reading of a proposed ordinance to amend the Code of Ordinances of the City of North Myrtle Beach for gender-inclusive language.

Codes of Ordinances in many cities, including North Myrtle Beach, primarily contain masculine pronouns (he, him, his, etc.) when referencing gender. The Municipal Code Corporation (Muni-Code) has the authority to substitute gender-inclusive pronouns within the Code, where appropriate, with permission from City Council rendered by ordinance.

Many of the City’s ordinances were adopted years ago and their language reflects a period in time when the government was comprised mostly of men. Fast forward to today, and North Myrtle Beach now has elected and appointed City leadership and a City workforce that includes females at all levels. Staff recommended the proposed ordinance to City Council to reflect that reality. 

City Council passed first reading of a proposed ordinance regarding a petition for annexation and zoning designation for 0.28 acres on 1st Avenue South.

Anton Cherney, the property owner, has petitioned the City of North Myrtle Beach to annex approximately 0.28 acres of property located on 1st Avenue South identified by PIN 356-01-01-0016. The petition also reflects the requested City of North Myrtle Beach zoning district of Single-Family Residential Low-Density (R-1). The subject area is identified as Residential Neighborhood on the Future Land Use Map; the proposed zoning designation, R-1, best serves the goals of the plan given the transitional nature of this neighborhood.

City Council passed first reading of a proposed ordinance regarding a petition for annexation and zoning designation for 0.36 acres on Cenith Drive.

Jerred Roberts, the property owner, has petitioned the City of North Myrtle Beach to annex approximately 0.36 acres of property located on Cenith Drive identified by PINs 357-07-02-0002 and 357-07-02-0003. The petition also reflects the requested City of North Myrtle Beach zoning district of Single-Family Residential Low-Density (R-1). The subject area is identified as Residential Suburban on the Future Land Use Map; the proposed zoning designation, R-1, supports the City’s comprehensive plan.
